Saying from my family, now being given to my kids.

"If you want to be angry, you can find things to be angry about.

If you want to be sad, you can find things to be sad about.

If you want to be happy, you can find things to be happy about.

It is in you, do with it what you will."

Just one for the moment. Did you mean, "If you want to be sad, you can find things to be sad about"?

I try to live by that every day. Sometimes I catch myself worrying about or being upset over something that I create myself.

Very simple and to the point. I like it
If I want to have a good day I will.
If I want to have a bad day I will
I can change the kind of day Im having if I want to.

A beloved friend once gave me the following invaluable suggestion:

'Don't think about what you don't have--think about what you do have.'

Maybe a given at first glance, but think about it a little--it's profound. It works!
